Draft Surveys

Draft survey is an international
commercial method that traded
quantities of bulk cargo such as iron ore,
coal, steel scrap, grain and some
specific quantities of liquid cargoes are

During a draft survey, cargo quantities
are calculated based on the change of
ship’s drafts between different stages in
the loading or discharging process by
using the scales and hydrostatic property
tables on board the ship.

This convenient method is universally
adopted as the most efficient and
reliable way of measuring the cargo
quantity where accurate product
properties such as density and stowage
factors are not reliable
